B18c Rebuild, help with thrust washer location
Whats up T.I.
So for the past couple months I have been having blow by issues which led to me dissembling the engine. After removing all four pistons and piston rings I found out that piston #2 had a piece that cracked off after I took the two top rings off I am assuming this is where I was getting my blow by also I think some cheap rings were used and were not gapped correctly. I will be replacing all four pistons and pins along with honda oem rings and honing the cylinders shortly. As I was taking the crankshaft pulley bolt off my thrust washers fell off and left me clueless as to where there positioned. In the helms manual it states they sit on the fourth main bearing cap on the crankshaft.
- Do the thrust washers sit in between the block and crankshaft or does the main cap bridge hold them when bolted on?
- Should I be concerned on replacing all the bearings to the connecting rods there showing excessive wear and should I replace the thrust bearings as well?
I am trying to do everything right the first time as I do not want to have to disassemble anything again any recommendations or information helps thanks.
